area of a sector
The area of a sector in a circle of radius 6 inches is 48 square inches. Find the measure of the central angle to the nearest tenth of a degree.
A= 1/2 thata r^2
so then I say
48=1/2 thata 6^2
48=1/2 thata 36
48/18 = thata
the answer is suppose to be 152.8 I cannot get this answer I think that I need a pi symbol so that i can turn radians into degrees cuz thata needs to be in terms of radians. Please help I am stuck.
Your answer is correct in radians. To convert to degrees, multiply by . Also, it's spelled "theta."
Thanks I really thought that I had tried thank you for the help.
